> The express editions are only "free" until November 7th:
One can keep using any version downloaded before that date, but I would not
be surprised to see a bugfix sometime after.
There is also this:
2.What can I do with the Express Editions?
Evaluate the .NET Framework for Windows and Web development.
13.Can I develop applications using the Visual Studio Express Editions to
target the .NET Framework 1.1?
No, each release of Visual Studio is tied to a specific version of the .NET
Framework. The Express Editions can only be used to create applications
that run on the .NET Framework 2.0.
'Free' is not always free. This appears to be a .NET 2 promotion.
Perhaps the Firefox people are using the professional version, without such
